Senate Investigators Speak With Russians

Russian-Germans In Focus Amid Fears Of Moscow Propaganda

Reuters has reported that German political parties campaigning for elections next month are competing to attract 2 million voters with roots in the former Soviet Union, amid concerns that Russian propaganda could sway votes in the community. The biggest push for votes has come from the far-right Alternative for Germany, which has six Russian-German candidates on its party slate, and whose leaders have had two meetings with the community in recent weeks. Including candidates for the Social Democrats, conservatives and other parties, a record number of Russian-German candidates are standing in the election on September 24th, after years of having just one representative there - Heinrich Zertik, a member of Chancellor Angela Merkel's Christian Democrats.
